Paper Abstract

Thomson scattering for measuring the electron temperature and density has been a well known diagnostic in plasma physics used since the invention of the laser (1). The method itself is therefore only very briefly described. This paper is mainly concerned with a very advanced Thomson scattering system developed at Garching to investigate the high temperature plasma ASDEX. A selection of measurements is shown at the end.
